Director-free Process Initial Draft Call for Early Review

The Process CG has finished preparing a first “complete” draft of the Director-free Process for 2023, and we are ready to ask for an early informal review.
By “complete” we mean that every prepared part of Director-free has been 
incorporated, and the Director has been completely removed from the Process. 
By “first draft” we mean that there are still a number of open Process 2023 
issues, and we are not done with this cycle. We will send a “finished” draft 
for your review later.

We wanted to send this unfinished version for early review so that the 
community can review and discuss the Director-free aspects while we continue 
work on Process 2023.

You can file issues against the Process in the Process CG repository and join the Community Group to be part of the discussion.

For those of you not yet aware, Director-Free is a project of the W3C Advisory Board in which we are replacing the roles of the Director (Tim Berners-Lee) at W3C to 
accommodate Tim's retirement and to create a more community-driven governance 
for W3C standardization activities. It includes things like defining the W3C 
Council to resolve Formal Objections, which we have been experimenting with 
for the past few years.

The Process CG is working under delegation from the Advisory Board to draft up this plan.
